Acoustic saxophone meets digital technology in this innovative instrument.

]The Yamaha YDS-150 digital saxophone ushers in a new era of wind instrument performance. This revolutionary instrument fuses acoustic saxophone playing with powerful digital sound generation. The traditional brass bell, familiar key layout, and specialized mouthpiece provide an authentic experience for saxophonists while opening up a world of sonic possibilities.

At the heart of the YDS-150 is a sophisticated AWM Sampling system engineered with sampled soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone sax voices. It also includes a selection of synth leads ideal for electronic music. Sounds are selected directly on the instrument and can be fully customized using the dedicated app, along with fingering changes. Adjust parameters like pitch, tone, effects, and more to craft your perfect tone. Save your presets for instant recall during performance or practice.

The YDS-150 is designed to feel instantly familiar in your hands. It features standard saxophone keywork with keys for high F#, front F, and low A. This authentic layout allows saxophonists to translate their skills and muscle memory directly to the digital instrument. While the playing experience mirrors an acoustic sax, the YDS-150 opens up a wider range of expression through its advanced sound engine and connectivity options.

The free YDS-150 app provides an intuitive interface to unlock the full potential of this digital saxophone. Connect via Bluetooth to select sounds, adjust parameters in real time, assign custom fingerings, transpose keys, and save your personalized presets.

This groundbreaking instrument features a familiar yet futuristic design. The bell and mouthpiece are made of traditional saxophone materials to provide acoustic resonance and a familiar feel.
